Fill the Shoes 5k

It’s always the right time to do something good! And it’s always the right season for a run! So this November, come on out to the 2022 Jack T. Farrar, Jr. “Fill the Shoes” 5k

The 11th annual Fill the Shoes 5k is in honor of Jack T. Farrar Jr., a long-time Hayfield Farm resident who passed away in November 2005, just three months after a diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. 

This community race is dedicated to Jack and all people affected by pancreatic cancer. Net proceeds from this event will go directly to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to support them in their mission to “advance research, support patients, and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer.” 

 All race participants will be treated to a custom race shirt, goodies from the sponsors, and a great post-race party with food and raffle prizes. In addition, the top 3 overall male and female winners and the top 3 male and female finishers in several age groups will receive awards. 

The 2022 Fill the Shoes 5k takes place November 5, 2022, from 8 am – 10 am at Hayfield Park, 7611 Hayfield Rd, Alexandria, VA 22315.
